It�s been a rough few months for Mama June Shannon and her family, and now that her show From Not to Hot is nearing the end of its season, we�re getting a closer look at what went down during the downward spiral which has torn apart her family.
During the season finale of From Not to Hot, we see that Mama June�s family staged an intervention for her after falling into the world of drugs.
�If this intervention doesn�t work, she�s mentally going to have an actual breakdown,� Mama June�s daughter Pumpkin told the cameras.
Pumpkin then addressed her mom directly, trying to appeal to her maternal instincts.
�Physically, it�s like you don�t care about your health,� she said. �I�m concerned about you. We care about you. Alana cares about you, Jessica cares about you, Doe Doe cares about you and it�s like everybody�s trying to get you back healthy and you have tunnel vision and the only person you see is [June�s boyfriend] Geno.�
Alana, otherwise known as Honey Boo Boo, then broke down in tears and told her mom that she�s living with her sister because she�s scared of being at home with Mama June.
�I swear to God mama it�s not by choice,� she said through tears. �I would love to come home and stay with you, tell you about my day, but I can�t do that because I�m scared. I�m scared to stay at your house.�
Mama June was silent, then said she wouldn�t discuss the matter on camera and stormed out the house. Dr. Ish, a psychiatrist, and the show�s producers chased Mama June down and managed to talk to her.
�Just ask Geno how many times I sit there and cry to him and be like, �I hate my f�king self. I want to f�king kill the person that I am now.� Because I don�t know who I am,� she said. �I don�t know if I want to �kill myself� kill myself or I want to kill the person that has took over my body.�
After speaking with the doctor and producers, Mama June agreed to go to an in-patient facility to try and receive some help. The family drove her to North Carolina, where the facility was, and they had some hope she�d stay, but according to the preview, it didn�t last.
�After only 12 hours, June checks herself out,� the show explained. �Geno picks her up. Their whereabouts are unknown.�
Two days after Mama June left the center, she and Geno were arrested on felony charges.
�As soon as Geno got Mama from the treatment center, I knew it was over from there,� Pumpkin said in the episode. �Mama just got charged with possession of crack cocaine, which is a felony.�
�Since Mama June got arrested in Alabama, she has to stay there until she goes to court,� Doe Doe, June�s sister, said.
�June remains in Alabama,� the show added. �According to June, she�s not allowed to leave the state until after her hearing. She could face several years of jail time.�
Alana hopes that her mom is able to turn things around. As of right now, her legal guardian is her sister Pumpkin.
�I really hope this is rock bottom for Mama because once you hit rock bottom, there�s no more going deeper � you can only go up,� the former pageant star said. �I really hope mama�s just thinking �I just got arrested. I need to get it together. I need to get my shit together.� If this isn�t her wake-up call. I could possibly lose her forever.�
Pumpkin also hopes that this is a wake-up call, and she also knows one of the ways her mom can start getting better.
�As of right now, my hopes for Mama is honestly for her to get it together and her to leave Geno and just all-in-all get herself back to where she once was.�
The more I hear about it, the sadder I find the situation. I hope she�s able to turn it around for the sake of her family.
